What I Believe
Anthony Kenny is one of the leading philosophers of the post war years. In this brilliant new book, Kenny writes honestly about his own struggles with belief, and how he now sees himself as neither a theist or an atheist. His intellectual honesty will touch the hearts and minds of countless people. Kenny prowls at the frontiers of theology and philosophy and so commands interest from a very wide spectrum of readers - those who believe and those who find it hard to do so. In this respect his position is unique. Profoundly influenced by Wittgenstein, he has also written important books on St Thomas Aquinas and Descartes.
